A couple of random strategic considerations on the Latin American Economic Engagement topic

Here are a couple strategic considerations in terms of the economic engagement topic:

I would suggest the other possibility:
I have the notion that the circuit sometimes will avoid so-called Big Stick affirmatives.
I think the cuba embargo may be this.

Also, people may have a list of 6 to 12 standard exceptions to lifting the whole embargo.

I can see novice teams perhaps working on the Embargo….because its the core of the topic….and ultimately
the debates should be interesting. I would point out….there were still teams that were successful with Cuba
on that topic.

The PIC ground for the Cuba Embargo case just seems to be massive, massive given the experience on the college topic for 1999 to 2000. The experience level (aka history) of the writers may effect their vision on this topic.

In terms of Venezuela….it may be:
1) how good are the generics versus how good is the affirmative literature.
2) whats the opportunity cost in terms of the rest of the resolution (ie how good are the mexican affs strategically–in terms of generics versus the aff specific literature)

Counterplans, counterplans, counterplans.

To be honest, it seems like the internal links to the econ may be bigger with Mexico….
and I’m curious to what extent NAFTA will overwhelm the.

I’m curious if the roll back nafta counterplan or stop any future nafta deals will a popular way to generate uniqueness.
Although just banning future engagement beyond current levels may be sufficient to get that uniqueness and in a probably
easier to defend manner.
